    Oku was really lost. This arc was insanely long and what happened really (development wise). Not so much that it would require such an odyssee.

    In the time it took to do this arc, Oku could've done two missions (a long hard one and a short) with the same or even more development in it.
    I hope something like this won't happen again.

    ^^Definitely. Izumi, no matter how cool and skilled he was, would've certainly been a dead man against Nuri.

    I don't think Kurono could've handled him either, though. He had a very reckless fighting style and, to be quite honest, can we really call the Tokyo's Team's fight with the Oni Boss team-work? I just re-read those chapters and really, everyone just went at him one at a time. My guess: ironically, if the same team had fought against Nuri with Kurono as their leader, they might've actually gotten themselves killed quicker.

    @Prince:

    I completely agree. I actually wrote in Kurono as well but deleted it since he had already won his freedom and was killed outside of gantz meaning that he wouldn't have been in this mission either way. But yeah, I definitely agree.

    I'll actually be in Osaka this weekend, so I'll be sure to check for evidence as to how Oka was actually killed or who lived and what not. Wouldn't be surprised to Kuwabara at a club or something if he made it.

    Oh, yeah, good point! Didn't think about that, hehe. But yeah, we agree that if he had been in the mission, he may not have been a lot of help against Nuri. =D

    Lol! Awesome! And be sure to get rid of anything left of Nuri, in case you see him. :P

    @Twilit,On Kurono/Izumi:

    Oh, and while I am it, every time the issue of Izumi/Kuron not dying pops up, someone eventually says - Big deal. Just how much of a difference would it have made v. Nuri? My two cents, a lot. Like I pointed out, leaders/super players are important. Everytime one of them attempted something, we got an important hint/turnaround wrt Nuri. Sakata showed that Nuri could be delayed viz psychic attacks (A hint that Cherry/Katou did not pick up, sadly), Oka gave Katou a hint a possible weakness, Kaze restored everyone's hope with a big "don't give up!" and Katou picked up where he left off. If Kurono/Izumi were still there, that would have meant two more lifelines before we are down to the last desperate strategy. Two more chances to figure out his weakness. Even when things are as bad as Nuri, It's always better to have more reliable people, than less.
    I had to browse through ten pages of my own posts to find that one... T-T...

    @Shin: Well, how should I put it... Kurono and Izumi could have been a help. Usually, the more players, the better (especially when they're skilled players).

    I guess I'm just questioning their tactics; if Kurono had led a full blown offensive on Nuri with the rest of the team (like with the Oni Boss), they would've damaged him more but it wouldn't have mattered. He would have just regenerated again and again and again, wearing the team out and ultimately, I'm very sure Nuri would have won once he started using his eye-beams and/or psychic powers.

    By hanging back and watching Oka fight with Nuri, the Tokyo Team gained the necessary hint to the boss's weakness.

    Would Kurono have led the Tokyo Team to their deaths before Oka would've stepped in if he and Izumi had been up against Nuri? I say, it's definitely a possiblity, but it all remains speculation.

    Ive counted the aliens Nerdo slew and its about 14 around him. The bull-spider yokai that Oka took down destroyed alot of the yokai in that area when summoned by smashing stuff up.
    Nerdo may have 100 points, but going on what he did hit, at most by the predicted Nuri point scheme, he'd have 140 points, reviving Anzu and 40 points to go to being free/a super weapon.

    ^
    Counting is kind of pointless considering Oku just pulls numbers out of his ass. Good effort though.
    etufo: HS is most likely going to die sooner or later. Who will kill the cool character killer?

    Popo: well, obviously going by that logic, HS will have to kill himself...

    ^Sadly, yes. I think the scores made some sense until the Oni Mission. At least we do know exactly how many points Kitsune, Tengu and Nuri were worth.
